2018 SPON - Muscat. A blend of one year olf 100% spontaneously fermented beer refermented with Texas grown Muscat.
For Jester King SPON, we mix water from our well with local grains in a turbid mash, boil the wort for hours with aged hops from the attic of our barn, chill the wort over night in our coolship, 100% spontaneously ferment the beer with native yeast and bacteria, and mature it for years in oak barrels before blending and natural refermentation in bottle. The resulting beer is a unique refletion of the Texas Hill Country, the ecology of the Texas winter and the people of Jester King.
About the Brewery: Jester King is an authentic farmhouse brewery committed to mixed culture and spontaneous fermentation. Our beers incorporate well water, local grains, hops aged in our barn, local fruits and vegetables, foraged plants, and native yeast and bacteria so as to make beer uniquely tied to a time, place, and people. Our inspiration comes from the classic farmhouse breweries of Europe that embrace principles of subtlety, restraint, patience, full attenuation and interesting fermentation character.
